I was thinking about a friend of mine called Sabrina. In school, she laughs a lot, and is really nice. She's always smiling and happy and just overall a ray of sunshine.
Then I noticed that she would disappear a lot during class. I asked one of my other friends, and he told me that she had to go see the counselor a lot since she had really bad depression.
Then cue another girl. Let's call her Ali. She's a rebel. You can tell. She has a tough front, swears, and can be really rude (but sweet to friends). But she's depressed too. She's never said it but I can tell. Her family situation is bad. She said once that if it weren't for her baby brother, she would be dead. And I've seen the scars on her wrists.
So that's scaring me. They say a symptom of depression can be anger, too. Also, many people who act happy aren't. And I'm just walking around, wondering who's actually depressed, and it terrifies me, since I probably wouldn't know until it's too late.
